While not everyone is thrilled with the list of All PS Plus Games available as part of the classics selection with PS Plus Premium just yet, we do get the impression that the selection will be expanding quite a lot in the coming months. Indeed, another PSP game has been spotted on Sony’s servers in Japan, and this time it’s Disgaea: Afternoon of Darkness, which is a remake of the PS2’s Disgaea: Hour of Darkness.
In addition to revamped wide-screen presentation, this 2007 handheld re-release included additional boss battles and various quality of life improvements. It also incorporated an ad-hoc multiplayer mode, although we’re unsure how this will be handled by the emulation. We’re going to assume it’ll probably be excluded from the PS5 and PS4 versions.
Nevertheless, this is another welcome addition to the catalogue, although it should be stressed that this is only showing on the Japanese PS Store for now, and there’s no word on when – or, indeed, if – it’ll be available for subscribers in the west. It’s good to see more and more of these titles appearing, though: it shows that Sony is actually committed to this project for once.

Well that’s pretty cool. I’m a few hours into this on the Vita and I don’t really understand it but it’s decent.
Hopefully this wont be JP only if it drops. Hopefully they will also put way more PS1 Games on the Service
This is an interesting choice, since Disgaea 1 Complete is already on the PS4 (not sure if that's on the PS+ service).
Just keep dropping them underrated JRPG from PSP. So many hidden gems in that handheld that it's criminal. Hopefully, we get to see more. Would love to see Dissidia 012 playable on PS4/PS5 one day
@Ashina me too. Would love to see some Phantasy Star Portable on that ps store.
I hate the fact that some regions get games that others don't, so unfair. I wish Sony would focus a bit more on the PS2 games.
And does this one have trophies? The trophy support has been so been unfrotunatly weaker than I'd hoped outside of the first few.
@nessisonett I swear this series is one of the hardest to get into and understand. I have a friend in college who was obsessed with the series and I would just sit there doing homework not understanding a damn thing except there was a king in the demon world.
@pharos_haven It's incredibly open and full of variety by a trpg's standards, a genre that usually limits what you can bring to the table to keep the challenge high.
Bit overwhelming at first, but the story modes usually introduces the features gradually.
Are they only going to add obscure 2D strategy / puzzle type games & act Asif the PS4 & ps5 aren't capable of emulating anything better
